Enviro-Card Inks

The environment we live in concerns both our company as an enterprise, and its chemists individually. We strongly consider our impact on the environment, and as concerned suppliers to the plastic card industry, continue to work towards maximizing our use of renewable and bio-based materials.

In the early 1980’s, Gans Ink & Supply Co. was the innovator of high performance soy-based conventional inks for offset applications. Today, we have succeeded in formulating a revolutionary UV curing ink for the production of Secure and Non-Secure cards that contains the highest content of bio-based materials in the industry.

These inks have been quantified by an unbiased third-party University laboratory, using ASTM method D6866-10 for the testing bio-based content. Enviro-Card meets or exceeds all current products for post printing performance.
